Norwich for Jobs work experience provides confidence boost for Scott

When Norwich for Jobs started working with 23 year old Scott, he was claiming Employment Support Allowance and was low on confidence when it came to work.  Scott says:

“I decided to start work experience in February after attending an information session.  During this period of work experience I made full use of other opportunities on offer via Norwich for Jobs and attended a CV and interview advice session and a work taster with local Norwich for Jobs employers.

“I was quite apprehensive to begin with but after several chats with the Norwich for Jobs Project Manager, I decided to apply for a work experience placement with Anglian Home Improvements.  I then applied to undertake a work experience placement with Norfolk County Council and, as a result, I was offered a part-time job on their temporary register. 

“I’m now working and I feel more confident than I did when I first started and more positive about what I can do in work.  This experience has improved my life greatly and I feel more relaxed and happy.”
